Teens can talk manga at one of our anime clubs and end the summer on a high note with our Back to School Bash. Adults can join one of our book clubs or get one-on-one assistance with job help, technology, and more. Is your cosplay perfected and ready to show off? Come to FantaSci, our fantasy/science-fiction mini-con. To find everything that is going on this summer, check out The Loop! If you have questions about the Summer Reading Challenge or any of our programs, contact your local library branch.

    1. Thank you for your comment! We hope you enjoy everything we have to offer this summer, and best of luck when it comes to our fun prize chart!

    1. Thank you! We are very excited to see all ages come in to our libraries and experience all of the fun summer stuff. We hope to see you there!

  1. I wish I could create multiple readers under one account. I don’t like having to create a completely separate login for EVERY child PLUS myself and my husband! Kind of disengaging before I even start…just a thought for next summer.

    1. We’ve got you covered! The whole family can use one account to login and track everything!

      Want to get your family into the Challenge? Create a username and then follow these steps:
      adult > family registration > add family readers

      If you already created individual accounts just let a staff member know and they’ll be able to assist with the family account setup.

      Good luck and may your home be filled with readers this summer!
